problem, lots of big problems for mitt romney right now, but this 47% thing. if you're barack obama, as he has been doing these attack ads the last few days, he will hammer mitt romney over the head throughout this debate about 47%. if he doesn't, he's mad. because it's an incredibly powerful hammer to use, because whichever way you try and spin that, it was a disaster. he called half of the country a bunch of scrounging victims. what does mitt romney do if barack obama does that? >> mitt romney has said a couple things since, piers. the first thing he said was that was me, not my campaign. he actually took responsibility which i appreciate when a grown man says i'm sorry, i made a mistake. number two, number two, his campaign is all about 100% of america and here's what he meant. he said it was inelegantly stated but i agree, not just the president will take him to task on that but i think the debate questioners will ask him. but romney should look at that as an opportunity not to be defensive again but to explain precisely what he meant. the other thing that he really should do here is i
surrogates, florida senator marco rubio says that's the right approach. does mitt romney need to score a knockout punch? >> this is not an athletic competition. this is a debate between two money, one that is president and wants to stay there and one that wants to offer a new direction. >> reporter: all day long the romney campaign has signalled it will go after what it sees as another gaffe from vice president joe biden at a rally in charlotte. >> this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> in the richest country in the history of the world this obama economy has crushed the middle class. >> reporter: romney's ad team quickly seized on the remarks churning out a web video. at an event in denver rubio piled on. >> those happen to be the words of the distinguished vice president of the united states mr. joe biden. no, don't boo. he's the best thing we got going, guys. don't boo. because in a moment of clarity, in a brief moment of clarity he just told us what we already knew. >> reporter
. they've been following what mitt romney has said. >> right. >> they're tuning in to the fact that he wasn't telling the truth last night. >> the conversation we had just a moment ago says on some of these things there are different ways of looking at t the point is, who is going to make the best point to the american people? some things can be proven definitively right or wrong. andrew sullivan, an influential supporter of the president and blogger called his performance absolutely disgracefully bad. let me play a sound bite of what he said and let you respond to that. >> i have never seen a president of the united states blather, blather on like that, bore us, tell us none of his major arguments, fight back against any of the obvious distortions of the other candidate and just sit there. i mean, really. and you know how much i love this guy. >> stephanie, did you feel a little bit of that frustration? >> you know, i appreciate his opinion. i disagree with it. i think the president had a good performance last night. obviously, mitt romney had a good performance, but that's just what
, lower income families with children would pay an average $2,000 more. but mitt romney is right to point out that others have poked holes in the math, including bloomberg, that middle class would be hit with an increase of only $1,000 not $2,000. the tax policy center was told about this. according to bloomberg, the authors changed some of their statements. the conservative tax foundation claims that the center didn't account for economic growth and romney's plan would pay for itself, that there would be no middle class income tax increase. last month came on the show and did the math and said if you close or cap itemized deductions and assume that the economy grows at 3%. historically, that would be reasonable. right now it's been a challenge. they would raise $200 billion, which means you wouldn't have to raise taxes on the middle class. it could add up. if he could sell it, could it be the issue that wins him the election? the senior political analyst and fiscal responsibility and reform. great to see both of you. appreciate it. doug, let me start with you. this stood out to me last n
of the health care debate? >> i think mitt romney has it right in the sense that obama care is unpopular. pieces of it might be popular, but mitt romney's been campaigning that he would repeal obama care and replace it with pieces that are popular, but this whole idea about social issues i think is so fascinating and underreported that really it's the obama campaign and the democratic party that has tried to make this a social issues election. even turning questions of taxation into a question of fairness, not one of fiscal responsibility or sobriety because at the president himself said, you don't raise taxes in a recession, and we're still certainly struggling along in this economy. so taxation has been turned into a social issue. we saw in the mid-term election that 31% of gay men and women actually voted for the gop so. what did you see at the democratic convention? gay marriage being touted. finally, on women's issues. if you were to listen to the democratic party, apparently there's some deficit, some sortage sort a -- shortage of condoms, but women care most about the economy. democrats t
romney can give all of these voters an excuse to vote for him, right? >> yeah, we talked about this yesterday on the show. if he can go in -- that's why i worry about all this talk about zingers, just stylistically. don't be someone you're not. don't come in with canned jokes. be who you are, which is the line he delivered, i thought, well in his convention speech where he said, i can't heal the earth. i'm not going to part the seas, whatever he said. i just want to help you and your family. i'm not fancy, i'm not exciting. i want this job because i can do a better job healing the economy, not the earth, healing the economy than he has done for the last 3 1/2 years. if he can do that, be confident, don't try to be slick or funny, it's not who you are, just be mitt romney, he'll have a good night. >> i think he'll have a good night. i'll tell you this also, mark mckinnon. we're going to hear about the 47% from barack obama tonight. he'll bring that up. i also think mitt romney will bring this up in the debate. something that was spoken yesterday in charlotte, north carolina, by
: since you're supporting romney, the candidate who is running behind, you are supporting him, right? then you also need to lower the stakes for wednesday's first of these presidential debates, like this. >> frankly, i can't remember the last time there was one of these comments that grabbed everybody's attention because frankly the candidates are too well prepared. they're well scripted. >> reporter: and like this. >> i don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign. >> reporter: but definitely governor christie, definitely not like this. >> i'll tell you, bob, thursday morning, you're going to be scratching your heads and saying, wow, we have a barn burner for the next 33 days. >> reporter: the thing is, when you say that, the president's senior adviser says stuff like this. >> they expect to come out of this with a race fundamentally changed. what does that mean? if it is going to fundamentally change, that means in seven or ten days from now you'll see ohio tied, states like iowa tied. that's what matters here. >> reporter: like they say, governor christie, there i
, but mary is right, there's a lot of economic anxiety and the democratic governor raised taxes, and his approval has fallen below 50% so this is going to depend on coat tails between romney and obama and go right to the finish line. >> and with these ads she's also hitting on this trust issue, he was on the financial services committee in congress. aen she's suggesting in her ads, also, that he is someone who got a favor from the bank in connecticut, even after he had stopped paying his mortgage so that's suggesting that people can't trust him. >> though he and the bank do deny that. >> and really she went so far for the democratic committee to invest in the race, obama is up 12, 14 points in the state, a very blue state, but made this a competitive race which no one expected. >> and a lot of people are independents. >> that's right. still ahead, the supreme court is back in town and the new term promises to bring new controversy. and next week, affirmative action, we'll preview that case and potential blockbusters next. >> well, maybe nothing can stop the drama of june's controversial
should be drawn right here. >> after dropping this on the u.n. yesterday, he talks to obama and romney today. what israel's line in the sand would mean for all of us. plus, have you seen chelsea lately? >> nobody knows what the hell they're getting into when they're running for president. >> one of my favorites guests is back. >> i'm single, yes. >> if men are

of it is still benefits to the president right now and hurts the romney narrative i think. jenna: let me ask you this. taking out some of the partisan side of all of this for voters, we're officially in the crazy period, right, joe? >> right. jenna: this will get crazy over next couple weeks. as seasoned campaigner, someone who has been through the elections what tips can you give us as voters out there to navigate what we're hearing and what we're going to continue to hear over the next couple weeks to election day? >> people have to research the facts themselves. look at the charts, both sides will call each other liars and twist the facts and make the economic numbers look the way they want to look. if you're undecided, you really got to take time and look, you know, go online, or you know, pay attention to what is happening. and not listen to what the rhetoric on both sides is going to be i think. jenna: sounds like good advice, joe. appreciate it as always. look forward to having you back. thank you. >> thanks, jenna, more new information now on those millions of americans still looking for
that the race right now in a dead tie right now. this state is crucial where are good news for mitt romney who has had some terrible news in the past few weeks. a lot of people have said his campaign has sputtered, but those are two good states. where there is bad news is you head to the midwest to ohio. it shows that right there barack obama has a pretty good lead right now in that battleground state, suzanne. >> i know at the debate tonight it will be focused on domestic issues. when you look at both of these counties here, of course, one the incumbent, the other one who is trying to make the case that his policies would be better than the president's, who has the advantage? >> well, you know, that's a good question because they both say that they have the answers to try to turn the economy around xshgs it really comes down to appealing to we think about 6% of the electorate right now who hasn't decided who they're going to vote for. of that 6% they live in nine states, including the state that i'm standing in right now. the other states that we're really focussing on as we just talked about
't think by much, because president obama right now is in a very strong position. >> what do you think mitt romney needs to do? >> oh, i think mitt romney needs to talk about failure and success. mitt romney may not be the perfect candidate, but this president doesn't have much in the way of accomplishments, especially when it comes to this economy. he has to say look, barack obama, you may have succeeded as a politician but you haven't succeeded as a president. i know what it takes to succeed in life, i've done it a lot in business creating growth and jobs. let's talk about that. >> it does seem in the last couple days his campaign has been kind of trying to make him seem like a warmer guy. i mean, that photo -- >> hes loosened his tie, taken it off. he's laughed a little more. the job for mitt romney clearly is to get in the ring, get in the arena and to show that he can handle these tough issues. he hasn't been specific. he has to avoid talking about taxes, has to avoid talking about the 47%. he has to play offense. and president obama has to make sure that he doesn't play preventive def

for ronald reagan. is there a way -- are you doing anything to get into the race cycle with obama and romney? host: what do you say? we had a similar question from twitter. guest: right now i'm excluded from the first debate. the commission is the presidential debate commission and that is private and made up of republicans and democrats with no interest in seeing a third voice on stage. we have filed three lawsuits to get me on stage based on other third-party candidates who have there doesn't seem to be much hope. we filed on the antitrust round, -- browns. -- grounds. something that has not been done before. host: how much do these debates matter and what are you looking for to hearing on wednesday? guest: the debates are tantamount to me having a chance of winning. you can close the lid on winning the election. is winning getting enough votes to cause one of the other two who ends up winning to give more than just lip service to these issues? potentially. you know, steve, i view this as a victory every single day. there are so many people -- i think i speak on behalf of the majority of a
